My take:

C: Less expensive experienced FA catcher platooning with Flowers. If A.J. takes a pay cut, it could be him
1B: Konerko
2B: Time to cut bait on Beckham, deal him for something decent. Try to acquire a leadoff hitter here and move De Aza to 2nd spot where he profiles better and where a pure hitter is needed
SS: Ramirez
3B: give Morel another shot, bat 9th, add a good hitter for the bench who can backup at 3B
LF: trade Viciedo (IMO Boras is going to want $6-7M in arb) for prospects, add young good hitter with good eye at the plate who can improve into a quality corner outfielder
CF: De Aza
RF: Rios
DH: a Kenny-special inexpensive retread after Dunn is dealt for an inning eater starter with a similarly bad contract. Tori Hunter??

bench:
C: Flowers
IF: experienced platoon 3B who can step in for Morel
IF: someone who can backup SS and at least put up a decent AB
OF: decent bench power hitter
OF: decent bench average hitter


SP: Sale
SP: Danks
SP: Quintana
SP: inning eater in Dunn trade
SP: Humber/minor leaguer pushing for a spot in spring

CL: Reed
SU: Santiago
SU: Crain
MR: Veal
MR: Jones
LR: ?

Decline Thornton's and Floyd's options
